It Was Just For the Corinthians, Right? Part I...

A Headcovering thought...

Many teach or have been taught that I Corinthians 11:1-16 
was a teaching just for the Corinthians and only at that time.  
For today's thought, let's look at the beginning of the book.
 Paul tells us in verse 2 of chapter 1 who he is writing to...
"To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are 
sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all who in every place 
 call on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours." NKJV
Note the words I placed in bold.  With all - in every place... 
it's a little hard to feel excluded - even in these modern time from these words -  
If we are in Christ Jesus that is.  
In almost no other book of the New Testament is the greeting 
so broad as it is in this book.

In the next post we'll continue with this thought just a bit.

Part II of this short study.
